New Year's Day 2014 - I'm really starting the year off right - NOT!!  We had brunch this morning with good friends Sally and Stan and Cis and Joe.  And - I didn't remember to take any pictures of the occasion!!!   Are you believing that??!

Cis and Joe arrived at Torrey Oaks on Saturday afternoon for the winter.  Sally and Stan and Ken and I met them at Gloria's on Sunday morning for Steak and Eggs so we could welcome them back to Florida.  That was so good and so much fun seeing everyone together again!!

                     Joe's favorite!

Wow, portions at Gloria's are enormous!!  I decided to doggie bag my fried potatoes.  Stan and Sally donated their potatoes to my collection, too.  I ended up with a huge pile of left-over fried potatoes!  I decided to make a Spinach and Potatoes Frittata for a New Year's Day Brunch!  Never made one before -- never even tasted a Frittata!!  But I needed something to do with those potatoes!  I invited the group to share, and Cis invited us to have the brunch in their rig!!  Perfect!!

So that is what we did!!  New Year's Day Brunch!!  But I totally forgot to take pictures!  Not one picture!!

No pictures of us toasting the New Year with Mimosas of Campaign and fresh orange juice!

No pictures of my beautiful Spinach and Potato Frittata.  It tasted pretty good if I do say so myself!  But next time I'll use fewer of Gloria's potatoes!!  HA HA

No pictures of us munching my yummy Marinated Poppyseed Ham and Cheese Rolls!!  Everybody loved them!

No pictures of Cis' beautiful fresh fruit bowl!!  All kinds of chopped fresh fruit!

And no pictures of Sally's delicious mini lemon tartlets!!  Great finish to our New Year's Day Brunch with good friends!!

Sidebar:  All pictures copied from the Internet!!  They are amazingly close to our real life dishes!


Dec 31 - Celebrating New Year's Eve with friends Cis and Joe and Sally and Stan!!  We are at their RV resort, Torrey Oaks, where the resort served a delicious Prime Rib dinner with all the trimmings.

The dinner was followed by music and dancing.  The theme for the evening was "Hooray For Hollywood".  Some of the couples dressed in Hollywood costumes -- Caesar and Cleopatra, Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Duck Dynasty guys, John Wayne, etc.

Here Joe and Cis enjoy slow dancing!

Stan and Sally doing the Swing!

Ken and Faye are happy to be on the dance floor again!



Dec 30 -  We have been enjoying playing Pickleball in the mornings at TT Peace River.  There have been about 12 players most mornings!  Did not get any action pictures because there is no place to stand with the camera.  Notice the nice high green chain-link fence around the courts!

Players:  Wilma, Ken, Rosa and Rick.

On the other court:  Heady, Jim, Isaiah, and Jim.

Stu, Rosa, Faye and Rick.

Becky, Art, Tom and Ken.

A good time was had by all on the Pickleball courts!!
